Hybrids not only save gas, but also the environment. When you burn one gallon of gas (about 6 pounds) you release about 20 pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Reducing the effects of global warming benefits everyone, not just the person driving the hybrid. Most people concentrate on saving gas and money, but the environment is the most valuable thing saved by hybrids. Now more than ever it is important to consider the environmental benefit of driving a low impact vehicle such as a fuel-efficient hybrid. It is no longer enough to look at the immeidate economic implications of the car you drive, but to look at the long-term impact the choices you make today have on future generations. Consider a hybrid for your next vehicle and drive environmentally responsibly.
